Kissingate Brewery started life at our private address in Crawley, West Sussex.

After years of hobby brewing and dreaming about starting a business of our own we decided to tentatively give it a go. We purchased a small American brewing system and located it in our garage.

We brewed our first test batch of 'Old Tale' Porter on 23rd September 2009.

In April 2010 we were officially registered as a commercial brewery and with planning consent and other permissions granted we began the Kissingate journey.

After just a few months brewing from home we found ourselves running out of space so we decided to seek premises elsewhere. In September 2010 we were lucky enough to find a suitable industrial unit on a small farm estate in Lower Beeding near Horsham.

In February 2012 we moved again into the Pole Barn which is just a few yards away across the road!
